The Learner with Down Syndrome
The more children with Down syndrome you know, the more it is
apparent that not all children with Down syndrome are alike.
The Learning Process
At any given time, we could be seeing, hearing, touching, smelling,
and tasting - or doing any combinations of these things. Usually
we are able to filter out the information that is not important and
focus on the events and objects in our environment that are most
important to us at the moment.
Effective teaching starts with educational teams discovering what
their students already know, and what they need to know, one
step at a time, to have a successful life.
